If you care to look, there's a pretty contentious comments thread attached to that article. Fun stuff!
Just realized I never replied to the original post.

- i hadnt heard the term 'shoaling' before. Not totally sure why thats what this action is called. Is it because a group of cyclists will sometimes gather? I guess that could make sense, but when its just 1 cyclists doing it and not a group, the term then really doesnt work. Is it based on the geographic term?

- I like your view- its OK to do IF the road is wide enough after the intersection for cars to easily pass you again. That is a fantastic approach.
